Hey, if you were telling your friend about Mastodon, which of its defining characteristics would you mention?

Follow up to this - if you're involved with a nonprofit, public agency, media/journalism, or grassroots organizing, and want to explore an official Fediverse presence with a technical partner handling backend details, get in contact: instance.community

Can anyone recommend a good @peertube instance for an African-American solidarity economy project that is not ready to host its own instance?

So the cool part about Mastodon, right? You don't need to be on the same domain as other people to talk to them. You can sign-up on or invite your friends to:

mastodon.madrid

mastodon.cat

mastodon.eus

And many others, and still be able to talk to the world / follow your friends on mastodon.social and vice versa.

Please help those servers grow by spreading the word about them! (And if you are interested in starting a new server, you can do that too!)

#YoMigroaMastodon

I'm kicking around the idea of getting into the Mastodon hosting business, but targeted towards grassroots organizers, nonprofits, and other community groups. Quietly launching a beta: if you want an instance send an email to info <at> instance.community

Hey any #Spanish speakers wanna take a turn running twitter.com/fedisupport? There are thousands of people trying to figure this place out and they are currently asking about it on twitter. #Fediverse #Mastodon #MastoDev #HelpWanted #YoMigroaMastodon #HablasEspañol

Cheers!

Things I wanna see in 2020: More than 5K servers, more than 5M users, more than 1M monthly active users, more artists and musicians, more journalists, and for more people to use the goddamn #caturday hashtag when posting cats on a saturday

The Fediverse's tipping point is arriving. Brace yourselves.

When agencies, institutions, brands, celebs, media, et cetera come to the fedi with their own instances, what will the "tipping point" look like?
